From Canton Tea Co

The 2005 Lao Tong Zhi Brick is a raw puerh produced by the Haiwan factory from tea harvested in Meng Hai using only high quality leaves. It has all the bright notes of a young puerh with fresh hay aromas. The true characteristics of the tea emerge after a couple of infusions with rich, subtle and complex flavours.

Our Buyer’s notes
“A good, traditional-style, raw puerh that shows great potential for ageing into something really special.”

I’ll admit it…I’ve been drinking.

No, not tea-drinking, the “other” kind of drinking. It’s currently about 1AM, and I just got done with a two-pint night after an exceptionally crappy day. How crappy? Oh, one of those debt-looming, still-unemployed, hemorrhaging wallet sort of days. Closing the night off with one of my delectable sheng pu-erhs seemed like a wonderful nightcap. Fitting that this should be my last of this particular batch.

You might be wondering where the taster notes for this update are. Eh, I’ve done two others; you already know I love this stuff to death. It’s far more robust than the average sheng, but not overly robust like a shou pu-erh. I will miss it, heartily – like its taste.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a story about sex, drugs and spaceports to write.

EDIT: DONE! The story I was working on while drinking this: http://www.lazyliteratus.com/1750

I know…odd.

I know those days Geoffrey!
Best of luck, tomorrow’s a new day :)

I love your writing style – such a strong voice. I went back and now I’m reading everything and I can’t tear myself away!


@DaisyChubb Have you read his Steep Stories? That is some epic stuff!

@DaisyChubb: I can provide ’em as chapter links – in order – if you need to read them successively. One kinda tumbles into the other.

First steeping. Not much flavor coming though. Just a bit of smokiness.
